I am not necessarily a huge fan of “chick flicks” but there are those that I do love. I caught one of my favorites this weekend, Bridget Jones Diary – The Edge of Reason.
Mark Darcy: And can you think of three? Bridget Jones: Yes. Mark Darcy: Which are? Bridget Jones: First off, I embarrass you. I can’t ski, I can’t ride, I can’t speak Latin , my legs only come up to here and yes I will always be just a little bit fat. And you, you fold your underpants before you go to bed! Mark Darcy: No, hang on! That-that can’t be a reason. Bridget Jones: No, it’s not a reason! But you’re not perfect either! You look down your nose at absolutely everyone and you’re incapable of doing anything spontaneous or potentially affectionate.
Bridget Jones: It feels like you’re waiting to find someone in the VIP room who’s- who’s so fantastic, just the way she is, that you don’t need to fix her.
Mark Darcy : Bridget, this is mad.
Bridget Jones: And perhaps you thought you found her.
Bridget Jones: Do you *want* to marry me?
Mark Darcy: Look- I…
Bridget Jones: You see, you can never muster the strength, to fight for me.
I hate chick flicks.
